Great food & service, a little cramped

A great venue with excellent food and attentive service. I had a really enjoyable experience and such a great meal. The only downside was how close together the tables were! But it's still worth a visit.

We had been keen to try Pei Modern on our trip to Victoria, but unfortunately this restaurant did not live up to our expectations. We dined on a Wednesday night and there were only five other tables occupied. The menu is interesting but not extensive and we chose some starters and share plates. Only upon placing our order were we... More

We decided to have a pre-theatre dinner here. Staff were very disorganised, and we received several different versions of what was available for the pre-theatre menu (they had no written menu). Food was average, in fact the steak served to my wife was possibly the worst steak either of us has been served anywhere. Wine list was limited and quite... More

This is a very nice place with ambituous food; the service does not meet the standard of the food. The restaurant: It is located at the back of a shopping mall and next to the car-park of the Sofitel hotel. When you walk on Collins Street you see number 35…next number is 55…and for 45 you have to walk past... More

There's a option for a fast business lunch with a set menu enabling either a selection of entree, main or desert. The service was quick, the food was great and the portions were about right for lunch. Great value for money business lunch in the heart of the Paris end of Collins Street.

Like one of the other reviewers, we ended up here for breakfast because it was the first stop in the Queenies Breakfast walking tour. As a general rule we avoid hotel dining rooms, but the link to thehighly rated Sydney offering made this one interesting. The service was excellent, the menu was interesting, the coffee was good and the food... More

My Mother and I booked a couple of month's ago having heard so many good things about this restaurant and we were left incredibly dissapointed! Service was slack and incredibly patronising, Steak was well below par and overpriced! I also hate it when you go somewhere and there is a very limited wine selection "By the glass", there were only... More

We stayed at the Sofitel and couldn't get a reservation at the hotel's in-house restaurant. Lucky for us! We had a fabulous evening at this restaurant. There's a great vibe here among the staff. I have a disability and was having my partner cut up my meal. When the wait staff saw this they offered to have the chef do... More

I happily ate here last night and I returned again tonight - I had to have more of the menu! The food was excellent last night - and pretty good tonight - except for the uncharacteristically fatty piece of wagyu (and I don't mean the normal marbling - I received a very small amount of meat with my fat, rather...

The restaurant is tucked away off the motor lobby of the Sofitel Melbourne. It is a modern restaurant with very basic bistro style interior. However, the food is modern in texture, execution and style. Food is simple but beautifully cooked to perfection. There are many home made desserts on the menu. Service was brilliant and we struck up a wonderful... More
